Robots Can Learn To Safely Navigate Warehouses
Robots have been working in factories for many years. But given the related safety concerns to the tasks they perform, most operate inside cages or behind safety glass to limit or prevent interaction with humans. In warehouse operations, where goods are continuously sorted and moved, robots can be neither caged nor stationary.

Developing a crowd-friendly robotic wheelchair
Developing a crowd-friendly robotic wheelchair
Robotic wheelchairs may soon be able to move through crowds smoothly and safely. As part of CrowdBot, an project, researchers are exploring the technical, ethical and safety issues related to this kind of technology. The aim of the project is to eventually help the disabled get around more easily. Shoppers at Lausanne's weekly outdoor market may have come across one of EPFL's inventions in the past few weeks - a newfangled device that's part wheelchair, part robot.

LEONARDO, the Bipedal Robot, Can Ride a Skateboard and Walk a Slackline
LEO carves out a new type of locomotion somewhere between walking and flying Researchers at Caltech have built a bipedal robot that combines walking with flying to create a new type of locomotion, making it exceptionally nimble and capable of complex movements. Part walking robot, part flying drone, the newly developed LEONARDO (short for LEgs ONboARD drOne, or LEO for short) can walk a slackline, hop, and even ride a skateboard.

Insect-sized robot navigates mazes with the agility of a cheetah
Many insects and spiders get their uncanny ability to scurry up walls and walk upside down on ceilings with the help of specialized sticky footpads that allow them to adhere to surfaces in places where no human would dare to go. Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, have used the principle behind these some of these footpads, called electrostatic adhesion, to create an insect-scale robot that can swerve and pivot with the agility of a cheetah, giving it the ability to traverse complex terrain and quickly avoid unexpected obstacles.
